Detectives investigating the disappearance of Thornton Heath mother-of-two Janelle Duncan-Bailey have found a body.

The discovery was made in a parked car in Mayfield Crescent this afternoon after officers received information.

Police said they were confident the body is that of Ms Duncan-Bailey, 25, of Pawsons Road, Thornton Heath. Her next of kin has been informed and a post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

Ms Duncan-Bailey was last seen between 5am and 5.30am on Wednesday after leaving her two children with a friend in Bromley to go to a family function.

She left her friend’s address at around 4am to return to Thornton Heath on the understanding that she would collect her two boys, aged two and seven, later that morning.

But her friend reported her missing shortly after 4.20pm when she failed to show up.

She was last seen walking towards flats in Limpsfield Avenue.

Anyone who can assist the police with their investigation is asked to contact 020 8721 4054 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 30-year-old man was arrested in connection with Ms Duncan-Bailey’s disappearance yesterday evening.
